Easy peasy. This recipe a keeper, but the next time I'm adding more lemon and garlic.

Too sour for my taste. Flavor is just so-so. Recipe gives instructions to cut chicken pieces much smaller than the recipe photo suggests.

Hello! A chicken restaurant near me has a lemon chicken that is baked I think. It is delicious. So, I am guessing this recipe will taste like that! I'll try this recipe very soon! Thank you for this recipe!

After recovering from illness that left me temporarily without much of a sense of taste or smell, I was looking for a dish that was simple but also flavorful. This recipe could not have been a better fit. Just delicious. I did add a bit of wine to deglaze the pan along with the lemon as another reviewer suggested, but other than that followed the directions to the letter. Thank you for sharing this!

Wow, what can I say simple is best. My husband loves this. I thought no way is this going to be that good I was wrong. So so good.

I have made this for years but i add a splash of white wine at the end it adds character to the sauce

I’ve made this multiple time. It’s awesome. I will say though that I use the juice of at least a whole lemon if not more, as my family loves lemon, and I definitely let it simmer at the end to a,low the flavors to really soak in. Then I serve it over rice. So easy and it’s become a favorite.

This came out Terrific! I wonder if this resembles the LemonChicken Debra always made on Everybody Loves Raymond😁?

Made this and it's delicious. But any idea how to make it as glossy looking as the picture? Mine kind of just looks like bland chicken pieces.

You can try using a cornstarch slurry (not what they did in the recipe) to thicken the sauce... that will give it a sheen similar to the photos.

Made this last night. Delicious. I did add a few slice grape tomatoes and some capers to the dish.

Anyone know if this reheats well? I do bit meal swaps with my family and think this could be a great hit!

This was very nice. I used organic chicken thighs and doubled the lemon/sauce ingredients. Served it with wild rice and rosemary carrots. Thank you!
